This auction is for a letter from deceased Texas serial killer Mr. Henry Lee Lucas, (8/23/1936 – 3/12/2001). Lucas did enjoy a tall tale or two. And while he did partner up for a while with now deceased Mr. Ottis Toole, claiming to be part of the Hand of Death cult, law enforcement will never know exactly how many victims the pair leave in their wake. Lucas confessed from hundreds to thousands of murders. He would be convicted of 11 and sentenced to death. He sentenced would be commuted to life imprisonment by then Texas Governor George W. Bush. It was the only death sentence the to-be United States President would commute. There has been a lot of speculation over the case, even the 11 murder convictions would be debated. At the end of the day it's become pretty accepted Lucas killed at least three people, including his mother. Lucas was 64.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The completely handwritten missive is one page on an 8.5"×13.25" sheet, dated 3/10/1992, and signed, "Henry." The letter's original recipient was Lucas's "girlfriend" Ms. Phyllis Wilcox. The original mailing envelope is postmarked 3/12/1992 with nine lines of address written in Lucas's hand. On the reverse side of the envelope there is a T.D.C.J. stamp that reads: General inmate correspondence, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Institutional Division. This is an extremely affordable Lucas item! Not too many of his letters are being offered at this price. The letter and envelope come inside a protective magazine sleeve with an acid free board and have been stored flat. Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
